Got Salt?

We went to Inoteca today. HATED it. The only good thing was the suppli (risoto ball) appetizer. Everything else was too salty and just not that great. I fail to see or in this case taste what the hype is all about. The paninis were second rate the tramezzini that my son had was smaller than a sample, the baby octopus that I had was over salty and over done. The chicken was cooked perfectly with crispy skin and all but over salty and although the bruschette were tasty it seems a little excessive to charge 3 bucks for a slice of toast.

That's a shame. It's so easy to err on the side of caution with salt. I mean, you can always add more, right? But you can;t go back after sodium overload.

Here's to better meals out.

Whenever I get an overly salty meal at a restaurant, I ask myself; "What are they trying to hide?". I checked out the menu, and see why you like to cook at home so much ($$$$ for ?)!

$3 for toast? You can buy an entire loaf of bread for less than that!
